Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday sought to block President Donald Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court by a vote of 50-49, but he faces a potentially insurmountable obstacle in Democratic-led Congress.

The vote is expected to come in the near future, and if Democrats block it, Kavanaugh would be confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday.

Republicans would then have to decide whether to approve the nomination, which they’re expected to do.

The Senate Judiciary Committee’s rules call for a simple majority vote to approve nominees.

Sessions, who was Trump’s first pick to become attorney general, had sought to persuade Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who is retiring this year, to vote against Kavanaugh.

He said the nominee’s past record of support for the Clintons and their allies was “so egregious, so obvious, so disqualifying.”

In a statement Wednesday, Feinstein said she was not interested in voting for Kavanaugh, and that the nominee is an “amazing judge of character.”

He was also opposed by other Democrats, including Sen. Kamala Harris of California and Rep. Jackie Speier of California.

A spokesman for Feinstein said in a statement she was “shocked” by the news of Sessions’ decision.

“Ms. Feinstein and the Judiciary Committee have been working hard to ensure that a nominee of Mr. Trump’s stature is confirmed to this court,” said the spokesman, Brian Fallon.

The Justice Department has already said it will not oppose the nomination.

But in an interview with CNN Wednesday, Sessions said he would not support the president’s nomination unless the Senate approves it.

He told CNN’s Dana Bash he would consider a vote against the nomination if he believed it was not a “sound judgment,” adding: “I don’t think that’s what the American people are interested in.”

He added: “This is a decision for the Senate, and I’ll be going back and forth with my colleagues on that.”

Democrats have indicated they would support Kavanaugh even if they don’t have the 50 votes they need to block him.

A group of Democratic senators, led by Sens.

Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island and Chris Coons of Delaware, introduced a bill to block the nomination Tuesday.

The bill would prohibit the president from using executive authority to nominate a justice to the court.

Democrats have said they believe the president should nominate a judge to the high court if he believes there is a conflict of interest because the nominee could potentially rule in favor of the administration’s position.

The president has said he won’t do that, arguing that the position would be too politically sensitive.

In an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Wednesday, Whitehouse said he is willing to vote to confirm Kavanaugh to protect the institution of the U
